What we want in Aleppo right now, which is the precursor to any ability to move to other things, is an immediate and verifiable, durable cessation of hostilities. And that includes all attacks by the regime, its allies and other combatants in Aleppo. We want safe passage, corridors of evacuation, which we're beginning today to see, perhaps take shape.
But we want to see those, for both civilians and fighters who choose to evacuate the city. We are convinced the killing and the suffering in Syria could stop, and it could stop very, very quickly, if Russia and the regime made the decision to do so.
